Windward Community College Chancellor’s Gala Dinner

Windward Community Chancellor's Gala Dinner

I had the pleasure of attending the first Chancellor’s Gala Dinner in 40 years at Windward Community College on Saturday night. The highlight of the evening was the chance to see the campus’ brand new Library Learning Commons.

I remember my very first Board of Regents meeting years ago at the Windward campus. The focus of that meeting was the need to create a new facility to house a library and learning commons. It was a proud moment for everyone to be standing in the beautiful building, which is set to receive an environmental Silver LEED designation.

I commend the faculty and staff who worked so hard and so diligently, for many years, to bring this vision to life.
